Weddings and Events in San Marcos, TX

Intimate or elaborate, garden or fireside, gourmet seated dinner or simple cake and punch, we love creating perfect weddings. We've been repeatedly voted "best caterer" and "best place to have a wedding" in our area.

Because we are so affordable, our specialties are small weddings, economy weddings (although we often do huge extravaganzas also), and last-minute weddings. The short notice doesn't bother us. We love it…give us at least two weeks and we can produce miracles. Of course, long lead times are fine too. Whatever you envision, and especially if "stress-free" is your goal, our highly experienced staff can bring it to life.

"Your pictures don't do this inn justice. It's like a beautiful hidden oasis in the middle of town--intimate, not too big and unmanageable, all-inclusive--exactly what I was looking for." ....Lindsey M, Odessa, spring 2013

Tiny Romantic Runaway Weddings

Under this scenario, we do the entire package for a romantic wedding just the two of you and no more than 25 guests, providing everything from minister and music to cake, flowers, and beautiful setting. Staff and guests will witness, along with a garden full of birds and butterflies. Costs vary from $100 to a luxurious $2,500 escape.

Elegantly Simple Larger Weddings

The inn's courtyard, gardens, dining and living areas hold up to 200; but we can cater for up to 400 people anywhere in Central Texas. Prices start at $4000 for a midweek, midafternoon, or offseason wedding for 100 people, including venue, food, beverage, personnel, decor, and rentals. Saturday evening events are typically in the $5000-6000 range. We've been voted "best caterer" and "best place to have a wedding" in Hays Country multiple times. Our indoor-outdoor venue features rose gardens and fountains, plus towering old pecan trees, and a huge brick-floored courtyard area that can be tented, even enclosed and climate-controlled. We use chandeliers and lots of tiny white lights to create a magical feeling in the tent. The adjacent dining room, great for intimate dinners as well as business meetings, has a fireplace, piano, wet bar, and atrium. The inn is beautiful without being stuffy or formal. Our hallmark is casual, comfortable, simple elegance.
